Shona Robison: We are aware of the global issues affecting construction, including the war in Ukraine and rising inflation; those effects have been exacerbated by Brexit and the current cost crisis. We are working closely with the construction industry and housing partners to mitigate those effects where possible and achieve our shared goal of delivering more affordable homes for Scotland.

Levelling Up Rural Britain (9 Nov 2022)

Bernard Jenkin: I think this counts as an intervention, Madam Deputy Speaker. It should be added to my time. I hope that the hon. Member for Nottingham North (Alex Norris) will rise to the occasion.

Given today’s labour shortage in agriculture...

Sri Lanka (9 Nov 2022)

Elliot Colburn: I am aware there is an important debate to follow, so I will be very brief. I again thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting us the chance to discuss this subject today, and I thank all colleagues who co-sponsored the debate or spoke in it. I urge the Government to revisit their strategies for promoting human rights on the island of Sri Lanka. Many Tamils will feel that we have...

Cop27 (9 Nov 2022)

Rishi Sunak: ...faster than anyone else in the G7, and we will fulfil our ambitious commitment to reduce emissions by at least 68% by the end of the decade.

Climate security and energy security go hand in hand. Putin’s contemptible...

Creative Industries: North-east (9 Nov 2022)

Julie Elliott: in the world. That will be a huge thing not just for Sunderland and the north-east, but for the country. There is the potential for creating 1,000 new jobs. Although during the second world war, we were the most productive city in the number of ships built, we can once again be a world leader, with the biggest water studio in the world. Although developments are in their early...

Scottish Parliament: Forestry (Contribution to Net Zero) (9 Nov 2022)

Willie Rennie: ...and tests of the huge competition for the use of land in Scotland. The ambition is great. I remember standing on platforms during the 2019 election campaign, when there was a massive bidding war between all the political parties as to who was going to plant the most trees across the United Kingdom. In some ways, that was bizarre, but it was uplifting that we were competing on such an...

Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Nov 2022)

Lord Davies of Brixton: ...covering the whole territory. There is much to learn. I will focus on one part of the report, which simply states: “There is a serious shortage of social housing”.

Papers Relating to the Home Secretary (8 Nov 2022)

Jeremy Quin: ...of the motion, and I was grateful, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for your guidance. However, I am pleased with the debate. In the intervention of my right hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh), we heard that, somehow, a self-confessed error of judgment relating to an email not on an issue of national security represents exceptional circumstances, in the view of the right hon....

State Pension Triple Lock (8 Nov 2022)

Kate Hollern: ...will be another £480. We have heard Conservative Members talk about covid, and I accept that the Government stepped up and delivered support for many across this country.

Liam Byrne: ...up prices for British citizens…Dirty money undermines the rule of law and democratic institutions.” The Minister knows what he is talking about when it comes to the Bill, which is why he is stewarding it so ably through Committee.

Labour and Skills Shortages: Temporary Recovery Visa — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (8 Nov 2022)

Anne McLaughlin: ...shocked and disgusted I was to hear the Home Secretary refer to an “invasion” of immigrants to these shores.

The Minister could argue that the Home Secretary was not talking about...
